Maths - improvement

Homework from school
The above picture were YX's homework which he brought back a few days before his exams. I'm glad to say that now he ENJOYED maths homework as much as the other subjects. He finally understand the format and managed to work them out with minimal supervisions. Unlike previously, he was always so afraid of his maths homework.

Counting with his little fingers
He still relies on his little fingers to count. I have taught him to count by showing 10 with his fingers and keep the remaining number inside his head. For example, if he has a sum of 13 - 5 , he will show 10 with his fingers and 3 keep in the head. He will then count, after 3 will be 4, 5 while taking away his fingers one by one. The remaining 8 fingers still standing tall will be the answer.

Writing on a piece of rough paper
I gave him a piece of paper and asked him to write the format there. After he got the answer, he will only write them into his book. So far, he is enjoying because he already found the joy in counting. Phew... what a relief !


  1. Practise makes perfect. Math is only a matter of practising.

  2. My daughter is scared of her chinese homework. Lazy to write the characters.

    Your son so keng! Nowadays kindergarten maths are tougher than our days.

  3. yes, really need to find an easy plus interesting plus effective method, not easy but both of you made it!! bravo..

  11. Thumbs up, YX! Glad he finally understand the concept and is mastering it.

  12. Funny how maths is one subject that either you have it, or you don't! if it's the latter, then it'll have to require much practise which may or may not bring the desired results :s

    So glad for your boy that he enjoys maths as much as uncle +Ant+! hehe
